Visconti has re-imagined the colors, textures, and emotions of Vincent Van Gogh's most famous paintings to create this successful pen collection. Each year, Visconti adds a new model to this iconic tribute to the impressionist art movement.
Made from natural resin uniquely mixed to represent palettes of oil paint, the Van Gogh collection utilizes Visconti's eighteen-faceted design to enhance the vivid colors. The Van Gogh collection may be personalized using Visconti's "My Pen System" and features the brand's iconic magnetic closure system and Ponte Vecchio-inspired clip.
The Orchard in Blossom painting features the flowering fruit trees that populated the orchards in the city of Arles, in the south of France, in the spring of 1888. After his arrival there, Van Gogh began to paint many flowering fruit trees like peach, almond, and apricot. Orchard in Blossom is dated April 1888 and is thought to depict plum trees in full bloom. It is currently on display at the Scottish National Museum, Edinburgh.
For its debut, the Orchard in Blossom arrives in a special edition box with the painting printed on the lid and comes packaged with a special edition bookmark.
